Forest Park Academy students kicked-off the African American Film Festival by viewing "Tell Them We Are Rising." After the screening, a Roanoke College professor leads students in a discussion about the film.

Students from Stonewall Jackson Middle, Woodrow Wilson Middle, and Lucy Addison Middle will also attend the African American Film Festival at the Grandin Theatre.  They will see movies like "The Blindside" and "Hidden Figures."
